“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse. So collapse, crumble. This is not your destruction. This is your birth.” – n.t.
There was a time when I would refrain from talking about my downfalls, my weaknesses, my low moments but not anymore. I talk about them frequently and openly because they’ve become my stepping stones. People talk about climbing the ladder in reference to careers all the time but what about life in general?
I’ve said it before, 2017 was my breaking point, my early midlife crisis, my turning point. And it’s only because I hit that all time low I was able to rebuild my life. I was able to customize my definition of happiness and truly begin my spiritual journey to a deeper understanding of who I was, am and want to be.
It was this time last year that I had my last greatest breakdown. It was horrible, I was definitely ugly crying without the ability to stop. Looking back I am so thankful for that moment. It’s immediately following that day I had my “ah-ha” light bulb. I hated my relationship, hated the environment I was in and realized I hated my career. I began searching for my eraser and blackboard so I could redraw this life plan of mine.
I changed each part of my life I wasn’t in love with one at a time. One whole trip around the sun later I changed the last thing on my list: my career. This was a hard one to let go of. I’m a very driven and dedicated workaholic who killed it to get where I was. With each passing day my willingness and eagerness to go to work faded drastically. The signs were there to move on but where? how? Then it hit me. I was meant for more than this position, more than this company had to offer me. Months before I quit I manifested the life I wanted. Then I did it, I quit.
I have never been happier than I am right now. I work a part time job where I have complete flexibility and have been manifesting my best next chapter. I have been working on my blog, getting ready to be certified to teach yoga and building my own business. I get to see my family, boyfriend, friends whenever I want and do yoga every chance I can. It’s completely wonderful. Ready for the crazy part? I’m here to tell you that your dream life is attainable too!
Keep your eyes out for some great stuff I have heading your way. I’m here to make a difference, like I’ve always dreamed, one person, one group or a couple hundred at a time.
So much love for you guys, Ali
